Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

02/23/2019 - College Recruiting Day - Sioux Falls, SD Grafton is an athletic SS/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2022. In the field, Grafton shows proper footwork and takes good angles to the ball. He makes the routine plays and keeps his throws accurate to his target. At the plate, this LHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a square stride. He is smooth getting into his load and maintains center balance. He takes a level swing with fast bat speed, leading to solid contact and line drives. On the mound, Grafton gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and stays inline towards the plate. Grafton shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 71mph with tailing action. Changeup sits from 60-62mph with arm side run as he throws with deceptive arm speed. With three more years to develop, Grafton has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
